Agenda for 2/9/2017 Meeting

  • DKCA needs you for the distribution and to help raise awareness for our petition the DOT campaign. Traffic and safety issues in our community abound and we need to let the city know that we will not be ignored and our concerns must be addressed. Join us to help in eliminating gridlock, ending overnight construction parking regulations, getting stop signs and traffic lights installed at dangerous intersections and fighting the excessive noise and horn blowing our neighborhood has been enduring. If you have any related issues you would like to see addressed please join us at the meeting.
  • The Dutchkills Civic Association is pleased to announce it has been awarded a $14,800.00 award from Councilman Jimmy Van Bramers office. The award is to be used for the Windmill Community Garden and the support of youth development and community commitment in the Dutchkills area of Long Island City through the promotion of events and community organizing efforts. Please join us at the upcoming general membership meeting with your best ideas on how to facilitate these goals and to learn more details about this generous award.
